Last night and today have not been easy. It’s been the hardest day since ICU. We have been in touch with Dr. Shahinians nurse, Christina and they are really working with us to get through these first few days of recovery. She said sometimes the swelling gets worse before better.
Please lift Anna up for strength! We pray she sees relief from the cerebral swelling soon. The swelling is causing facial paralysis and blacking out episodes. She only sleeps about two hours at night and is exhausted. The melatonin level takes a little while to build up, helping her sleep. We discontinued pain meds as they do not help with the pressure pain and that has allowed her to eat more solid foods.
She has not been well enough today to read her messages but please know they mean so much to her and they give her strength. We read them to her when we can.
Earlier this afternoon she told me she felt a blanket of warmth all over and she knew that was coming from the power of prayer! I know that too!
We appreciate every prayer and kind word! Love to all, Jill
